    Gone But Not Fogotten — A big leap over the Integra, the RSX Type-S brought the smallest Acura more in line with the rest of the Acura lineup by adding a slew of luxury features and higher level of performance. While it's 200 HP appears impressive, the i-VTEC engine never seemed to fulfill it's promise of sports car performance. Reserving it's power for a VTEC surge at about 5200 RPMs, the Type-S was great for highway sprints, but always seems numb on the daily side road commute. Build quality was exceptional though and for a car in it's class, it was a performace deal.

    Pros: Best dash of any car I've owned (make more like this Honda!)  Respectable handling and acceleration.

    Cons: Bland exterior, somewhat cheap interior plastics.

    2002 Acura Rsx Type-s — This badass Acura has 200 hp to the engine and 142 ft lbs of torque with 60K miles on it. The style is great and the interior has a awesome look! There are endless upgrades you can do to this car. Just becareful what you put on and how you do it because it could lead to some mechanical problems. The car is very fun to drive and is good on gas. Usually my tank lasts about 2 weeks and I get about 300 miles to the tank. I would recommend this car to anyone that wants something reliable but still has a sporty look/feel.

    Pros: Style and interior.

    Cons: Not enough torque.

    You Can Never Go Wrong With An Acura — Best choice for the price. Six-speed manual transmission is so much fun to drive. Lots of choices for mods. Could use a bit more torque on the low end, but that's pretty typical of Hondas in general.

    Pros: Fun to drive, quick, 6-speed, decent gas mileage for a sports car.

    Cons: Could use more torque on the low end, second highest fatality rate for its model year.

    Why Rsx — If you got 10-15k to hang around a car, you for sure want to spend on this car, the DC5 integra, aka, usdm RSX is a fun car to drive with high rev with out sacraficing loads of gasoline, sexy body shape, with 6 speed on the type s it's the perfect combination for a fun car. 10-15k would buy you a already nicely owned one, tuned one usually runs around 15k tag.

    Pros: High rev ivtec engine, low rolling, not much problem, sexy

    Cons: ivtec will for sure get you pulled over.

    Best Bang For Your Buck — Reliable car, probably one of the quickest for the price. Stiff, but comfortable ride. Good throttle response... i-VTEC is amazing. 6-speed gearbox is very nice.

    Pros: Quick, agile, fuel-efficient... i-VTEC

    Cons: Non-turbo...

    Man I Miss That Car... May She Rest In Peace... — Oh come on, like you've never seen an RSX type-S before... it's sleek, stylish, comfortable and quick. Six-speed manual transmission, 200 hp at the flywheel (before I put the intake on), was able to beat anyone that tried to line up against me, and sounded great with the Injen short-ram intake.

    Pros: Sleek, stylish, quick, comfortable, customizable.

    Cons: Performance took a major hit with the AC on.  Was still able to beat a Firebird with it on,
    though.  That's about it. =)

    Quick, Fun, Sexy, Easy To Mod, Easy To Love, Wouldn't Trade For Anything... — I love my car. obviously its a tuner, its not the fastest thing on the road, but I love to drive it. It brings smiles to my face and I consider it a blessing from God. I don't see me ever getting rid of it, Lord willing.

    Pros: Quick, handles well , K20A2 engine,  could be awesome with a few mods.

    Cons: heavy, leather seats are cheap, McPhearson strut front suspension.

    Not An Acura Rsx But A Uk Integra Type R... — Nice car. Fantastic engine, awesome FWD handling and quite grippy, but too slow, leery rear wing and too expensive to insure (for its performance). Very good car, but neutral/understeery. Ultimately boring.

    Pros: Engine, looks great

    Cons: Underpowered despite the fantastive engineering feat of the engine, and FWD, which is no fun
